Just a remarkable finish that held up for 50, yes, 50 years!!!
Ah, that's when paint was paint, no primer in one. Painter's were Painter's and Men were Men!

Sadly, I got it right away.


That being said, we do have a decent population of old timers on here.

I heard the whoosh loud and clear.
One, I didn't connect it with Archie Bunker, and two, what is it about Herbert Hoover?

I’m sort of surprised. You’re old enough to have have been able to remember this - unless you just never watched it. As for Hoover, I just always assumed he was the choice of the conservatives.

I find I've missed a lot of well known phrases, sayings, songs, and quotes that most others within my generation remember well. It's like they'd just watched the television program last night, or something.

I was at a bar the other day with a co worker(actually my boss, but don't tell anyone). A conversation came up with a fellow Boomer (stranger) at the bar that involved a quote. Immediately my boss got it and related it to an Abbot and Costello movie. They both chuckled and had that understanding that they shared something unique mostly to those in their generation. I sat there like a dumbfounded Millenial sipping on a Shirley temple rather than the Tequila in front of me. I'm experiencing that same feeling here.

I guess it's simply some things make an impression on people and somethings don't. And although All in the Family, Abbot and Costello, and Bob Hope were very entertaining to me as a yute, i apparently didn't care enough to absorb their genius. Meh.

You might have increased the recognition factor of this sung line if you spelled Herbert Hoover as Hoibert Hoover.

FULL DISCLOSURE: When I was a kid, I thought the other line was: "Boy, the wayglin Miller place". What a wayglin Miller place was- who knew? Sure didn't know who Glenn Miller was either.

When I was young that was the one line I could never make out. I thought it was "Gee the old and sour and great!" haha

Some of the best painters I've worked with came from a painting family and started when they were in their teens helping the old man do side jobs!

Well, it says, “In the Mood”, so...
Great stuff!

But I actually already knew it. I didn’t care much for his stuff when younger but developed an appreciation for as I matured.

Same with Sinatra; His “Reprise” album has got to be one of the all time best from that era, and beyond.
